I just bought my dress yesterday and thought I would see what other people spent. I first went to one of the oldest shops in Winnipeg, where my mom bought hers 29 years ago and fell in love with a Venus dress. It was $600, which is pretty reasonable. We decided to look around a bit more, but after a few shops nothing compared to how I looked in this dress. But on a lark we decided to try one more store and I found the exact same dress for $485. Needless to say we picked it up then and there! I was shocked I even bought one on my first day out! My alterations should be under $100, so at the end of the day that's not too shabby. I didn't really have a budget, but the price is totally reasonable!
